NHS Fylde and Wyre Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is inviting members of the public to its Annual General Meeting on Tuesday 4 August 2015, 1-3pm, at Thornton Little Theatre in Wyre.

This will be an opportunity to hear about the work of the CCG and its achievements during 2014/15, and about its plans for the coming year.

The meeting will feature the presentation of our Annual Report and Accounts 2014/15 and an opportunity to hear from the CCG’s executive team.

The CCG’s Chair, Mary Dowling, said: “We very much look forward to welcoming people from across the Fylde coast to our Annual General Meeting. This is an opportunity to share with you the CCG’s achievements, and, just as importantly, recognise and congratulate people and organisations during our awards ceremony.

“We’ve also invited local organisations to exhibit at the meeting and I hope the residents of Fylde and Wyre take the chance to talk to these groups and discuss how they could help.”

This year, the CCG will announce the winners of its new awards and celebrate the success of people and organisations that are helping to improve the health and wellbeing of residents across Fylde and Wyre.

The CCG has also invited 14 local organisations to exhibit at the event. These groups will talk to members of the public about sharing ways in which they can help them with their health.

There will be a light lunch from 12pm. Invitees should confirm their attendance by contacting the CCG on 01253 956400 or emailing: enquiries@fyldeandwyreccg.nhs.uk.
